You have YLOD you have to open and strip the ps3 down to motherboard then either reball the GPU/CPU (this method requires experience with circuit boards) or reflow the the solder around the chipsets using a heat gun, if you feel you can do the later I will give you more detailed instructions if you want.

It turns on but nothing comes up on the tv and wont turn back off


This is a problem with your system software. Please follow these steps to fix it :

Step 1. Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)

Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep when you first press it, then beep again 5 seconds later and then beep once more and turn back off into standby(red light on) . Release the power button after it has switched itself back off.

Step 3. Again, press and hold the power button. It will beep when you first press it, then beep again 5 seconds later, then there will be 2 quick beeps together. Release the power button when you hear these 2 quick beeps.

Step 4. The PS3 will start up asking you to connect a controller via USB and press the PS button. Do this an then continue to the next step.

Step 5. A menu will load with 6 options. Choose option 3 "Restore File System". Accept whatever the PS3 says and hopefully it will restart as normal.

If option 3 does not work, do the above again and choose option 4, "Rebuild Database". If this does not work as a last resort select option 5, "Restore PS3 System". THIS WILL ERASE ALL DATA ON YOUR DRIVE!!

One of these options will bring your PS3 back to life.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

The playstation 3 shut off in the middle of play. Now the little red light just keeps blinking. We unplugged it made sure theere was nothing blocking it to cause it to over heat, we plugged it back in and...


If the system turns on but then turns itself off, beeps at you and flashes it's lights at you then you have over heated the system. The GPU chip has probly pulled itself away from the board. This will require you to diassemble the PS3...... u just fix this by using ps3 repair guide....

The PS3 will not play via hdmi. I start it on the cables go to display settings and slect hdmi the screen goes blank for awhile and then goes back to av


Instead please try the following steps to solve your PS3 problem :
Step 1. Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)
Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep as soon as you press it and then about 5 seconds later it will beep again. Let go of the power button when you hear this second beep.
Step 3. Wait for your PS3 to start.
This solution basically resets the video output back to standard definition.

My kidere playing Call of Duty world at war and now My PS3 stopped working??


Hi,
Hopefully this will help solve your problem:
1. Press and hold down the power button located at the front of the PS3 console, until you hear a first beep, then eventually a second – before the console shuts down, then let go of the button;
2. Now press and hold the button again until you hear a first beep, then a second beep then eventually a quick double-beep, then let go of the button;
3. The TV screen should now display a six option menu, where you can select what’s required, i.e. `Restart System`, `Restore System` etc. `Reset System` should only be used after other attempts with the other options, as your game saved data may be lost. If you play Modern Warfare 2 online, then this won’t be affected as your data is saved on the Sony Server.
4. During any of the above actions, your best having your handset controller connected to the PS3 via the USB cord, which includes pressing the `P` button when required (located between `Start` and `Select`).
These actions should help solve `freeze` problems and others such as update errors etc – which restrict you starting up or playing your console.
Don’t hesitate to contact Sony UK if required, who are very helpful. Their UK number is: 0844 7360595

Good Luck!

Problems with call of duty 4 and call of duty world at war


i guess it's a problem with your Hard Disk . please try the following :
  • re-updating your system by an USB device (download the update from sony ps3 website)
  • reinstalling all game data files
  • restoring your system (don't forget to backup all your important files such as game saves !!)

I believe you have the PS3's version of the RRoD, it's extremely rare (0.03%), but statistics mean nothing to the individual.

Either call Sony's support helpline (the number should be on their site somewhere) and ask them what to do/to fix it or take it back to the retailer you bought it from with the receipt and ask if they can replace it.
